Channel Africa, an international radio service of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), will host a debate on Albinism on the 28th of March 2018. The debate will be held at the SABC’s Headquarters in Auckland Park – Johannesburg, where Channel Africa broadcasts.
The debate is intended to be part of an informal knowledge building radio programme, The Albinism Report, whose tagline is “The Enlightened Narrative”. This is a programme that demystifies myths and mysticism on albinism, whilst highlighting challenges and achievements of people with albinism.
The event will be a recorded two-hour discussion and debate under a motto linked to the theme on Human Rights- “People with Albinism have Human Rights too!!!” with a sub-theme per hour.
The sub-themes shall be, as follows:
- Theme 1-Visual and Story Representation.
- Theme 2- Language and Discourse on Albinism
This initiative is also in line with the United Nation’s recognition of the month of March as an “International Human Rights Month”.
